Did you know deer can swim? Neither did I! My sister yelled to me from her floatie (as I was staining the deck), Pete, there's a deer on the island. Doubting what I had heard, the next thing I knew the deer was swimming back to our shore.

My niece captured the whole thing on her phone (although it's a little hard to see). You gotta look close. Who knew?

How skinny are those legs & hooves? Imagine what that thing could do with flippers and goggles.

Thank you Olivia for your play-by-play. :)
